Premium separators for small-scale dairy processing

When you run a small-scale dairy, the performance of your equipment is crucial for profitability. With compact, high-efficiency Alfa Laval dairy separators you get skimming and clarification that helps you make the most of your milk. The separators require minimal time and effort for operation, cleaning, and maintenance – enabling you to focus more resources on boosting your dairy’s productivity.


When buying an AL separator you get:


High yield

When every drop matters, you can’t compromise on product quality and processing efficiency. Alfa Laval H and D series separators are specially designed to secure high-efficiency skimming and milk clarification in small-scale dairy production. The self-cleaning separators provide safe, gentle, and consistent treatment to safeguard the quality of your product.


Saving time and effort

In a small dairy, time and labour are precious resources. Alfa Laval H and D series separators are self-discharging and self-cleaning. Compared with solid-wall separators, this means more efficient and hassle-free processing, with no need for manual opening and cleaning.


Superior hygiene

Hygiene is critical in any dairy, large or small. Our H and D series separators provide a strong basis for excellent hygiene, with FDA-approved food grade materials and automatic Cleaning-in-Place.
